The 23rd edition of “Flamenco Festival on Tour” is coming to Miami, featuring performances by Spanish artists José del Tomate, Rycardo Moreno, Alejandro Hurtado, Antonio Rey, Gala Flamenca 24, and the National Ballet of Spain.

Under the direction and leadership of Miguel Marín, Flamenco Festival’s annual international events serve as a platform for presenting today’s foremost flamenco artists — from internationally acclaimed artists and icons of traditional flamenco to cutting-edge and young talents in dance, music, and song. In this year’s edition, more than 150 artists from Spain will join the 80 from New York, to present 44 performances in the United States in a total of 21 spaces, 13 in New York and 8 in Miami, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

National Ballet of Spain: Invocación

Invocation is a program that intertwines various styles of dance through different choreographies, ranging from bolero school, stylized dance, to flamenco. The show consists of several pieces, including Bolero Invocation (one of the few recent choreographies of bolero school where Director Rubén Olmo has aimed to update the essence of this traditional dance, one of the most complex disciplines to execute) and Eternal Iberia, choreographed by Antonio Najarro, representing the classic Spanish style that identifies the National Ballet of Spain. Olmo reproduces this flamenco suite for the National Ballet of Spain, incorporating two new choreographies, Taranto and Romance del emplazado, created by two disciples of Mario Maya: Rafaela Carrasco and Isabel Bayón.
